Democracy Sweden

The people of Sweden have gone to the polls & voted for leadership. Turnout was 85.8%

Details can be seen here in English:

A new government is likely. This is good because mass surveillance and lack of transparency were characteristics of the old government, with secret entanglements to foreign intelligence services & militaristic business interests. We might hope our new bosses quickly learn what's been happening.

It's probably too much to hope spying & surveillance will stop, but at least more people will know the extent of Sweden's secret entanglements...

Militarism is dirty business - let's have much less of it.
